I recently reformatted my computer ( operating system windows xp pro) and installed vs 2005 an vs2008. When testing an asp.net web application on my localhost Asp.Net applications are starting up using ASP.Net Development Host. This has never been an issue before.
I went into the application properties and changed the server settings to use IIS Web Server. The first run I received a message that I did not have IIS installed on the computer. So I went through the process of installing IIS (add / remove components). Apparently I did not do something correct.
The application that I am testing works fine at work (on the localhost) however, on my machine at home it does not. When using the asp.net development server, my test page does not completely load (browser progress bar stops)
Further information, We purchased some software (3rd party controls for asp.net) and the software package comes with an exe file the displays examples of different controls and the way they function. I ran the exe file and the controls do not display in the browser. (they should work fine)
Every thing I have tested works fine on my computer at work.
